IUI, or intrauterine insemination, involves placing washed sperm directly inside the uterus to facilitate fertilization. It’s less invasive and less expensive than IVF. This treatment is mainly used for those dealing with low sperm count or frozen sperm and women with cervical mucus issues. People with unexplained infertility where the first line of treatments (oral medications, ovulation predictor kits, and even at home inseminations for those using frozen sperm or are unable to have intercourse) were unsuccessful are also candidates for an IUI procedure. Consult with our virtual fertility specialists to explore if IUI fits your circumstances.
